      Alright folks.....we have a complete, timed rotating assembly. The valve and timing covers are all tourqued down and good to go. The flywheel and clutch assembly is torqued and ready to roll. I will be chasing threads and mounting thermostats tommorrow. I believe we will also be trying to finalize the intake manifold. The stock bolts of the intake mani had to be cut down. Fuel rail and injectors yet to come. Almost time to lay in the wiring harness and start the process.......
      Thanks for checkin in More to come!!!

      Can't find my crank sensor, but everything else is moving along nicely. Next weekend i hope to move forward with the wiring harness.
      Thanks for taking a look.

      watching...still trying to decide to build a frank motor or an r32 motor for my corrado, guess ill wait and see your numbers first.

      I will be limited to what the injectors allow. I am running 550cc injectors with a custom C2 tune. We will see what this head allows. Stock 24v needs 20psi to breach 400whp.
      I am hoping this head plus cams nets somewhere around 15psi to breach that 400whp barrier. Thats the idea anyway.

      i would be running full standalone. IMHO thats the only way to run any turbo motor. tune specifically to that exact car. no 2 cars are the same, therefore i think that a chip is just a barrier to the potential HP you can make

      Where'd you get this idea from? If that's the case.. my 2.8L 24v with just a head spacer and head studs must be a freak, along with everyone else that makes 500whp fairly easily on pump gas @ around 20psi.

      What I'm trying to say is, a c2/UM 550cc file @ 4bar is closer to 630cc, anddd with the R32 head, you'd be making more power since the head flows better. Somewhere closer to 550whp@20ish psi. A chip-tune on these cars isn't bad at all, and tons of guys on here drive their turbo 24v's fairly often, if not daily, with nothing but good things to say. Passes inspection, drives like stock under boost, cold start, cruise control, everything. Doing that with standalone/piggyback is much harder. Just my two cents though.
      The internet is serious business.

      This is a chip build due to NJ emissions requirement. If any of the standalone systems out there allowed me to pass OBD2 emissions, then I would be into it. The chip is as custom as it can get. This is not a generic shelf tune, but a file created specifically for this motor and this build.

      As for the 400whp @ 20psi, I was not quoting exact figures, and was not talking about your car specifically. It was an estimate that I came up with looking at some of the 24v turbo builds that have come up on here in the past few years. Please post a dyno graph showing over 500hp at the wheels at only 20psi please. Would love to see what kind of freak your car must be.

      Relax guys....lets not get so emotional this early in the week.

      462whp/435wtq @ 19psi on my old modified EIP stg2 kit, turbonetics t04b turbo, 3" downpipe, uni 630cc file.

      don't have a dyno sheet for my new setup on the same dyno.

      not getting emotional, just saying you're underestimating your goals, the R head was overkill if anything if all you wanted was 400-450whp on pump, 12v guys make 500whp on pump gas fairly reliably on HG spacer motors, with a crappy flowing head.

      Those are great numbers at 19psi. What is your comp ratio with the spacer? I was not doubting your numbers or your beast. Like i said, my example was an estimate of what i have seen. It also is an example of why some of us want to play with the R head.
      My goals for this build is to max out injectors. The only question is at what power level.
      My entire motor is overbuilt for the fwd chassis anyway. The bottom end and R head are built for 6-800awhp in an S4 chassis down the road. The true benefit to this head is efficiency--same power levels at lower boost.
      Thanks for the comments--keep 'em comin...

      at those power goals on our cars(mk4, not the a4/s4 platform) the problem is that you'll shear the teeth off the gears, especially 4th, due to the torque. of course, the FWD platform has more give in it(the tires spinning = not as much stress, obviously because the power isn't completely getting to the ground)

      that was 9:1 if i recall correctly though. but yeah, as I said, not trying to be negative at all, I'm just saying you should look forward to more power than you expect, especially with the R head.

      watching though.

      im doing a n/a build with a 3.2 head on a 2.8 block which head gasket did you use i know that the releses are good enough in the pistons for the 3.2 head i also heard its very closes any info would be awesome

      I used a 2.8l 24v headgasket. I was told this gasket is good up to an 83mm bore. I punched mine out to 82mm ~ 2.9l 8:5:1comp ratio JE pistons. I did not clay the motor, but the only thing i would worry about in keeping a stock bore with R head is possible valve shrouding.

      Just a couple pics from today:






      Fuel rail and injectors are in. We are begining to thin the harness and extend some things. All sensors have been installed, and the motor is good to go.
      More to come tommorrow

      Hope you hide the wiring (like making it long enough to tuck it all). It's looking sick! But a bunch of wires everywhere could take away from that.. Either way this build is awesomely sick.

      We extended the coil wires by about 4 inchs, and will be replacing some of the plastic that held the loom with some aluminum rail....the wire harness is going to be as hidden in plain sight and clean as we can make it. Very mundane but important touches.....

      Wiring is complete. The harness is hidden "in plain sight". The coil pack wires have been lengthened to sit the wires in a channel.










      Got my R wheel in and i reinstalled my leathers with the heated seat harness installed. First time seats have been in the car in almost two years. Got some work to do to clean up accessories, alternator, etc....then its time to get my ride off jackstands and back on its wheels.
      here is a bad pic of my trunk set-up with the awic pump n resevoir.




      Thanks for lookin

      Gettin syc'd for some weekend work.

      Gonna have the completed wire loom completely secured n buttoned up on the block. The alternator is being cleaned up now n that should be installed tommorrow. The interior has to be completed and we will be fitting Focal Polyglass 2-way coaxials in the doors matched to a kenwood 5 channel excelon xr-5s. Gotta space the doors out n still fit monster magnets behind the door panel.

      Hoping to get my chasis off jackstands for the first time in 21 months, and back on wheels. Then its engine swappin tree time......
